The locations for the barbecues varies, but is usually held at the Upper Lake Park on Hwy 20 in Upper Lake or at Lake Mendocino. See the "Upcoming Events" page for more info.
The 2013 dates have been set. For more information, come to one of the weekly breakfasts, or contact Kristine at email@example.com
LOCAL LAKE COUNTY NETS
Here in Lake County, we have 2 regular Net Check-ins. The first one is the Lake County Monday Night Net on the 146.775 (Konocti) repeater with a PL of 103.5. This starts at 1830 hours.
The second one is on Wednesday nights. It is the ARES (Amatuer Radio Emergency Services) weekly net. This one is also on the 146.775 repeater with a PL of 103.5. This one starts at 1900 hours.
We are looking for volunteers that would like to further their own training and skill by acting as Net Control Station. We have a few regular positions available, plus we need volunteers for fill in net control stations to cover for vacations, etc. If you are interested, please contact one of the regular net control operators, and we will get you started.
There is also a WORLDWIDE NET called the Handshaker Net that "meets" every Tuesday night from 1900 hours (PST) to 2100 hours (PST). This one is on the Western Reflector which you can get to through any of the nodes that you you are able to link into. You can go to the link http://ki6luk.yolasite.com/ for more information on how to get into the local nodes. There is usually a trivia question asked that you may guess at if you like. It is a lot of fun listening to people from all over the world check in to this net. Harold K5MES is one of the founders of the net. One of our local hams is a net control on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Listen for Kristine, KI6YYW and check in! You may join the yahoo group for the handshaker net to get updated information on the group. Just go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Handshaker/ and request to be a member.
